Central has long been a central cornerstone of Winona. Our Vision is to be “The salt of the earth and the light of the world”, as we go out in Mission as “Faithful people proclaiming the gift of God’s grace to the world”.
As Lutheran Christians we are centered in Christ and seek to transform lives through the living Word. We put our faith in action, welcoming everyone and caring for the needs of all, as we seek the truth of scripture in thoughtful ways.
As part of the body of Christ, we are connected to our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world. We seek to build community within our own congregation, but serve also with the SE MN Synod of the ELCA and with Christians around the world. We are part of something bigger than ourselves; part of something that fills us with awe; we seek with other Christians to bring the love and grace of Christ to the world.

Every Wednesday from 5:00-6:15 PM Central Lutheran Church hosts a delicious home-made meal open to everybody in the community. All meals are all-you-can-eat. A free-will offering is accepted from those able to contribute, but not at all required.
In observance of Lent we are serving lighter meals. The Season of Lent is a time when we draw closer to God by doing certain practices that help us to focus on God in new ways in our lives. Lent is traditionally
described as lasting for forty days, in commemoration of the forty days Jesus spent fasting in the desert.

We all want to have happiness in our marriages. No one gets married so that they can be unhappily married. But what ingredients lend themselves to happy marriages?
There is no doubt that maintaining healthy relationships takes time and intentionality. We get in ruts. We forget what an incredible blessing our partner is. We take this most important person in life for granted. The solution? Simple tools that anyone can learn that strengthen relationships. Take some intentional time to focus on your relationship, strengthening those skills that will support a happy marriage.
Led by certified LSS therapists, this workshop is for those who want to have a strong, healthy, happy marriage.
